5. MAKE- this is our theme. And I love it.

6. LABS- wow, the wisdom and know-how that will be presenting on LABS day is humbling. Come a day early on Wednesday May 1 and hear from thought leaders like Bob Goff, Carl Lentz, Jon Acuff, Matt and Beth Redman, David Kinnaman, Tim Elmore, Stasi Eldredge, Matt Carter, Herbert Cooper, Charles Lee, Lynne Hybels, Charles Jenkins, Rachel Cruze, Jeremy Cowart, Stacy Spencer, Bianca Olthoff, Propaganda, Ryan O'Neal, Jo Saxton, Jennie Allen, Angie Smith, Jeff Shinabarger, Carlos Whittaker, Promise Tangeman, Ryan Leak and others!

7. Opening and Closing Session at LABS- Carl Lentz will be presenting in the opening session of Labs, and Bob Goff will be presenting in the closing session on Wednesday. Carl is the lead pastor of Hillsong Church New York City, and Bob is the best-selling author of Love Does and founder of Restore International.

8. 3300 Leaders- Catalyst attracts the doers, the influencers, the cultural architects, and change agents. And when you get 3300 leaders and influencers who are intent on making a difference together, great things happen.

9. Bent Tree Bible Fellowship- a great campus in Carrolton, TX (North Dallas). Top notch facilities, wireless, and a staff that is incredible to work with. The Bent Tree team is family, and we love working with them!

10. Our key partners and causes - at Catalyst we are always intentional about highlighting great organizations and leaders who are making a difference and impacting communities all over the world. Once again we'll have a number of organizations present that you can talk with and get involved with, including Plywood People, Convoy of Hope, The Giving Keys, Gift Card Giver, Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee (free coffee!!), Compassion International, and many more!

 11. The Unexpected- Our prayer is always that God would move in the hearts of the leaders who are part of Catalyst in ways we don't expect or plan for. We love creating what we consider to be a great event, but we trust and know that God shows up in unexpected ways and meets each leader in specific ways. We love hearing stories of life change, of moments of clarity, of great conversations, of powerful times of renewal, of leader's walk with Jesus becoming stronger, etc. The experience of Catalyst is what we all look forward to.
